Comedy Central New York takes over Cavallo’s
People packed the deck of Cavallo’s for the kickoff of the Winter Comedy Series on Oct. 1. From the minute you sat down until the time you left all you did was laugh. And, nobody was safe that night. Why you ask? The comedians engaged the crowd in their routines whether you looked like a spitting image of Steven Seagal or a couple on their first date which was not the case they were just good friends. The performers entertained us all night and if you missed them here is your chance to get to know them. Performing that night were:
RYAN NIEMILLER: Ryan Niemiller, the self-proclaimed “Cripple Threat of Comedy,” shares his hilarious view of the world from the perspective of someone who is physically disabled. Niemiller began his comedy career in Los Angeles, Calif. and hasn’t looked back since, performing in clubs and colleges across the country. Covering topics such as dating, employment, and finding acceptance in a world not designed for him, Ryan tackles the issues in a way that makes you think and laugh. Niemiller’s quick wit, timing, and gimmick only he can exploit makes him unarmed and dangerous.
A.J. FOSTER: Originally from The Bronx, Foster began doing standup while attending college in Utica. He was named Funniest Comic at the 2012 Finger Lakes Comedy Festival, champion of the 2014 Unforgettable Comedy Challenge and runner-up in 2014’s Funniest Person in Rochester Contest. He also was a semi-finalist on MTV’s Yo Momma.
WILL PHILLIPS: Phillips grew up in the Mohawk Valley and as he puts it “was raised primarily on classic rock, warm Genny Cream Ale, and comedy CDs that may have been deemed inappropriate for younger audiences. He was an early bloomer, quickly picking up valuable social skills at a young age by watching ‘90s professional wrestling, a personality trait that almost certainly will rub you the wrong way.” His self-published book “Hollywood Failure” recounts the five-year quest of becoming the “world’s greatest comedy writer.”
GAVIN EDDINGS: Gavin has opened for such comedy legends such as Bob Zany, Auggie Smith, and Tim Cavanaugh. In 2012, he won the Joke Factory’s title of “Funniest Person in Evansville, IN.” Being raised Mormon, plus homeschooled and rooted deeply in geek culture give Eddings all the fuel for hours of comedic entertainment.
